The North Village of Ossining starts with some smaller homes and continues along to much larger properties. Cedar Lane runs through the middle of the North Village and many of the homes along it have stunning river views. The properties range from some 1920s classics to Mid Century Moderns and custom homes built to savor the views.
The Audobon Park section of the North Village
In the 1920s, Audubon park was subdivided into generous 1/3 acre and larger lots. This was yet another section of Ossining where the developers built some very special individually-designed romance style homes, and gave the area a great start. The mason work on these homes is truly remarkable.
As the depression deepened the construction took a pause until the 1960s, when most of the remaining lots were built out. The Croton Aqueduct Trailway goes right through the center of the area and is one of the most beautiful trails on the East Coast. It is great for running, biking and cross-country skiing.
Some of the homes in the upper section of Audobon Park with Hudson River views were put in during the 1990s.
The BrAYton Park section of the North Village
Beach Road, the street into Brayton Park, originally was the carriage road for Moorhaven and its 5000 s/f brick carriage house set on 60 acres. It was the northernmost farmhouse of Philipsburg Manor. Moorhaven was built in 1740 as a Dutch Farmhouse and remodeled in the1850s in the Gothic Revival style. It was owned by the author of “The Night Before Christmas.”
The carriage house was converted to a residence by an architect, for his own use, and substantially improved by a couple of subsequent owners and has the style and character that would go well in Architectural Digest.
Some of the other homes on the street have river views and all are quality made and individually designed. At one point there were so many newspaper owners living on the street it became known as Publishers Row.
The entrance to the 12-acre Crawbuckie Nature Preserve is off of Beach Road. The Hudson River vistas, lovely trails and an up-close view of the natural Hudson River Valley “rain forest” make this a noteworthy destination and community amenity.
As a neighborhood, it is quiet and refined.
